Smoky oak, clay soil tones, smoked chili, sweet touch of caramel, blackberry coulis – velvet texture in the mouth, seductive soft tannins, mid-palate turns a bit loose and blowsy but quite texturally expansive, tightens up on the finish, a touch short but quite enjoyable already (89-90)

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc. Medium ruby core with a fuchsia rim. Caramel aromas surround dark boysenberry and black cherry fruit. Fairly oaky on the front palate followed by toasty cherry, cassis and roaste... Mike Supple. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Leoville-Poyferre 750ml

WS 90pts. - IWC 90pts. - According to the Wine Spectator: Offers subtle aromas of smoky wood, fresh herbs and dark fruits. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and soft, silky tannins. Very well-crafted and polished for the vintage. Much better than from barrel. Best after 2012. According to the Wine Advocate: Grapy, richly fruity, medium-bodied flavors of cocoa, white chocolate, spicy herbs, and black currants jump from the glass of this deliciously evolved, complex wine. It is a soft, easy-going St.-Julien to consume over the next 8-10 years.

65% Cabernet Sauvignon 24% Merlot 7% Petit Verdot 4% Cabernet Franc. Medium ruby core with a fuchsia rim. Caramel aromas surround dark boysenberry and black cherry fruit. Fairly oaky on the front palate followed by toasty cherry cassis and roasted earth. Round tannins and very approachable already. Mike Supple.

Winemaker's Notes:

Helped by a 98 point Parker rating for its 2003, Léoville-Poyferré is finallygetting the credit it deserves. Didier Cuvelier calls 2007 a great restaurantvintage - like 1999 but better made - but this feels like excessive modesty fora wine of this class. Intensely concentrated, minerally and stylish, it isclearly one of the wines of the vintage. A serious, fragrant nose leads on to aprecise, complex palate with finely tuned, supple tannins, generous blackberryand kirsch fruit and mocha and leather hints. This is another great successfrom the most underrated member of the Léoville clan.
